Korean Government is implementing green remodeling projects on existing buildings and structures in a way of promoting low carbon green growth. However, the current regulations and systems do not clearly define the scopes and contents of the green remodeling. Also, the lack of the inducement measure is another reason of the low engagement of the private enterprises to the green remodeling business. Therefore, this study proposes a tax exemption plan to promote green remodeling business implementation, with the consideration on practical applicability. And the proposed plan was applied to the green remodeling pilot project case in2 014 and the effect was quantitatively analyzed. The result is expected to be used as a base data to improve the tax exemption benefit system to invigorate green remodeling later.
